A definitive ranking of every One Direction album in honor of their 10th anniversary

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since four British boys and one Irish boy from the X Factor “Stole My Heart” (aha) and lead me to purchase every Union Jack-clad item I could get my hands on. One decade, three concerts, a theatrical movie and countless dollars later, I still have a soft spot for one of the biggest boybands to have ever walked the earth. Though my

‘The God of High School’ shapes up to be more than initially seemed

An adaptation of a South Korean web manhwa called “The God of High School” recently aired its first two episodes and began streaming on the anime site Crunchyroll. Leading up to the premiere, Crunchyroll put a lot of effort into marketing the show on their website and airing ads across YouTube, which made me a bit wary considering that shows they’ve heavily advertised in the past ended up being generic

Tropes in Entertainment: White guilt films

(This is part four in an ongoing series that examines tropes that perpetuate harmful stereotypes and behaviors in media against women, people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. Click the links to read part one, part two and part three.)

‘Kaguya-sama: Love Is War’ season 2 proves itself as one of this year’s top anime series

Whenever a new anime comes out, its future is always uncertain. It’s very common for anime seasons to only have 12 or 24 episodes, but not have its source material adapted any further, essentially leaving the story unfinished with no hope of continuation. So while I watched the first season of “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” from A-1 Pictures last year, I wasn’t expecting a second season to be announced at

‘Palm Springs’ reinvents ‘Groundhog Day’ formula into a fun 90-minute comedy

Boy does the concept of waking up in the same place over and over again without an end in sight ring true right now. I love watching a quirky movie that focuses on how two people cope with spending meaningless eternity together. What’s a good comedy without a little (or, in this case, a lot of) existential questioning? Oh right, yes, “Palm Springs” is a funny movie. When Nyles (Andy

Netflix’s ‘The Old Guard’ grounds immortal anti-heroes with human cores

“I’ve been here before, over and over again, and each time the same question — Is this it? Will this time be the one? And each time the same answer. And I’m so tired of it.” Immortality and action do not necessarily mesh together as well as one might expect — after all, how can there be tension when the protagonist is all but unkillable? While smooth, gripping action is inarguably the

‘Greyhound’ explores World War II struggles through a forgotten lens

“I wouldn’t need to take this risk if I’d been smarter yesterday.” “What you did yesterday got us to today.” “It’s not enough, Charlie. Not nearly enough.” During World War II, 3,500 ships and 72,200 lives were lost during the six-year Battle of the Atlantic, when Allied forces fought for control over the Atlantic ocean. The sea was crucial to the success of the Allies, as U.S. Naval cargo ships

Best of streaming services: HBO Max

It is good to be back and talking about the best that streaming services have to offer. If you missed anything, I’ve talked about the cream of the crop from streaming services like Netflix and Disney+, and today I am going to be talking about the newly released HBO Max service. Movies “Jaws”  (1975) What else is there to say about a movie like “Jaws?” It completely revolutionized the horror

Tropes in Entertainment Media: ‘Mighty Whitey’

(This is Part 3 in an ongoing series that examines tropes that perpetuate harmful stereotypes and behaviors in media against women, people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. Click the links to read Part 1 and Part 2). Hollywood seems hell-bent to tell stories about white men on journeys of self-discovery. The issue with many of these films is that their white main character’s journey involves them mingling with brown

‘Brand New Animal’ offers fun time, albeit uninspiring one

The trend of Netflix-original anime continues with the release of “Brand New Animal” by Studio Trigger, the creators of “Kill la Kill” and “Little Witch Academia.” “BNA” is Trigger’s newest project since their feature length film “Promare” released back in May of last year. While “BNA” is definitely not their best work, or most memorable, it’s super entertaining thanks to Trigger’s stellar animation and colorful cast of characters. “BNA” takes
